- Several leaders have come in solidarity with the embattled governor, condemning the move by Meru MCAs to impeach her.
- Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria took to his X account declaring his support for Mwangaza, terming the impeachment process as an evil scheme.
Former nominated senator Millicent Omanga has described the impeachment of Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza as unfortunate.
Omanga said it was a sad day for women in leadership, alleging that Mwangaza was being targeted by people who don't think she is qualified to be a governor.
"This is a sad day for women in leadership seeing a woman governor being a constant target by people who don’t think she is qualified enough to lead the great county of Meru," she said.
"I stand with Kawira Mwangaza."
Several leaders have come in solidarity with the embattled governor, condemning the move by Meru MCAs to impeach her.
Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria took to his X account declaring his support for Mwangaza, terming the impeachment process an evil scheme.
"I stand with Governor Kawira Mwangaza. This is an evil scheme by someone who thinks that the only way to be a Mt Kenya Kingpin is to bring down other leaders," the post reads in part.
He added that leaders have chosen not to solve the problems of the people from the region and they are getting desperate by the day.
"History will vindicate me."
Kirinyanga and Nakuru governors Anne Waiguru and Susan Kihika respectively have also expressed their support.
"My dear sister Governor Kawira, keep your head up and know that you are not alone. I stand with you. May the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; May the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. It shall be well my sister," Kihika said.
On her part, Waiguru said: Asiyekuwa na wake ana Mungu… I stand with you my sister Governor Kawira Mwangaza. It’s darkest before dawn. Look to the Hills from where your help comes from. There is God in Heaven.
Mwangaza was on Wednesday evening impeached by the Meru County Assembly following the tabling of a second motion for her removal from office.
A total of 59 MCAs, all of whom were at the Assembly, out of the total 69 voted in support of the impeachment motion.
"At this juncture, it is my pleasure to announce the ayes have it. The motion has passed and the governor stands impeached by the County Assembly of Meru," Meru County Assembly Speaker Ayub Bundi declared.
Mwangaza's fate now is with the senate.
